Tangi Villerbu is professor of history at the University of La Rochelle, France. He has worked on the Mississippi Valley from 1770 to 1860 by integrating Missouri into the Atlantic history.


This lecture proposes to reconfigure Missouri's French history by contextualizing three waves of French migration. Each time, Missouri can be understood as part of the Atlantic world's many histories: revolutions, nations, capitalism, all can be observed through the lives and settlement of French migrations.
